Christchurch 0-1 Sholing
Boatmen lifted the Russell Cotes Cup for the first time thanks to a 94th minute winner by Brad Targett. It took that long for a moment of quality in a scrappy game, but it was worth waiting for from a Sholing perspective as Jake Hoole put over a fantastic left foot cross on the run and Brad Targett met it at the far post with a downward header past the diving keeper. In the first half, both teams looked rusty after a few weeks off and on a dry & bobbly pitch, there were lots of stoppages and no flow to the match, with only a shot from Hoole saved in the 44th min of note. Second half, wasn't much better, but Sholing created more with Targett denied by a save and Dan Mason a clearance off the line. Christchurch had a few shots go wide and it looked set for penalties until the added time drama - Match Report, Video & Photos

Portland United 0-3 Sholing
Boatmen rounded off a record breaking Wessex league season in style with win number 34 out 38 games with victory over Portland United. The scoreline was a repeat of last week's game and the home side gave Sholing a helping hand with a bizarre own goal in the first half. Sholing extended their league in the second half, with Alex Sawyer rounding off a flowing move and then Brad Targett slotted past the keeper. It meant Sholing finished unbeaten away from home, led the league from the first game of the season to the last and also created a new Wessex record for points per game.
